Learners will investigate the five themes of geography as applicable to Europe, discover traditional examples of culture, and illustrate the impact of non-profit philanthropic organizations in selected European countries.
Five Forty-Five Minute Class Periods
The learner will:
Obtain the video "Fall of the Berlin Wall," a Warner Home Video, Oct. 24, 1990, available at Amazon.com and library collections. Show and discuss the video with your learners. Develop the history of the Cold War and the division of Europe between democracies and Communist regimes. Explore with your class the nations that were freed as a result of the Berlin wall coming down. As an outcome of the video and discussions, prepare a T list of established democracies before 1985 and new democracies after 1985. Post this list on the board for use in the instructional sequence.
Divide students into two teams. One team will research and report on long standing democracies in Europe and the other group will research and report on newly emerging democracies in Europe and their cultural traditions (see Bibliographical References for sources).
